for by taxes. you might have to pay more taxes if you get more government services. but at the same time, many of the same americans who an in a limited government way when asked that question by pollsters do not in fact want the federal government to stop doing a lot of things it currently does. or don't see it as having a immediate or near term cost to them. i think there are two examples we enhance late as well. i'm going to focus on people more conservative than moderate. the new york thymes did a story on the tea party, than quoted a woman named jo i did white. she said she was conflicted with the entitlement and things like that. he said, you know, i guess i want my social security, and smaller government too. which is, you know, there are people who are ought to be more familiar with the workings of the federal budget than random people quoted in news stories who nevertheless take this similar viewpoint. dick morris, the political consult assistant who moved from the democrat to the republicans who is famous for the prediction of the romney presidency -- [laughter] that very,

taxes for the education of its college students today than it had during the cold war. >> anybody else? back in the red shirt in the middle here. >> one of the kingpins of hollywood, more behind the seasons, was lou wasserman who seemed to helped his forces to some political efforts. what was his leanings? was he considered to be a lefty, righty, or just a pragmatist. >> the question is about lou wasserman and his political lengs. -- political leanings. richard? >> lou was seniorman was essentially a man defeated to the welfare of universal pictures. that's what he did and how he defined himself. it seems to me that wasserman was in a certain sense value neutral so long as whatever was happening worked to the benefit of his studio and his enterprise, and it was a vast enterprise by the time it was -- it reached full maturity. i don't think he was -- i don't think he was evil man. he was just a guy really tending to business in a very, very, i must say, very effective way. there's no question in my mind at least, that he was the weeding ontrip -- the leading entrepreneur of hollywo

thing, but also attacks on israel. and get some celebrating on jihad is a tax. and so when i was in college, the state department of course was horribly embarrassed and center packing home without the award. on the anniversary of 9/11, last fall, the embassy when the youtube trailer that paul mentioned came out, the embassy put up a statement saying that this was an abuse of freedom of speech. this is the same kind of characterization that egypt's government itself has use for many years and the u.n., that we must not abuse freedom of speech and, therefore, we must have international lastly lost its i think there's a problem coming from that embassy as well. >> if i can just add, nina mentioned this book, "blind spot," and my coeditors was lela gilbert. one of the phenomenal explorers in this is that most journalists with of course many exceptions don't understand religion. hear on talk about persecution and not talk about christianity alone. it's just in general many have a very secular mindset, which itself is okay, but actually don't really know what goes on outside that bubble.

for medicare? it turns out we all do. from the 2.9% payroll tax deducted from the payroll check. if you look at the stuff you'll see this deducted every paycheck you also pay for medicare from your federal income tax and seniors over 65 pay a premium and co-payments. this is in response to a column from paul krugman in my opinion federal programs supported by participants insurance premiums and not a tax revenue should not be a political football. while they need to be reviewed they have not contributed to the federal debt. it is a myth. here's the trick is 44% is paid for by federal income tax revenue. it does contribute to the federal debt because it does not collect sufficient money to pay all medicare bills and passed to borrow money to pay interest so yes does add to the federal debt. so when the bills sent to medicare the government does that have the money to pay all of them and borrows money from china. the u.s. federal debt exceeds $16 trillion. that is an enormous sum of money and growing. most people think of medicare as the entitlement for seniors. it is. that medicare i

tax cuts -- more spending cuts, and the democrats are going to want more tax increases, and i think you'd end up with something that is about 50/50 but that would really be both of them would want to be the pair that solved the yawning budget gap. so, and, you know, i look at my governor, mitch daniels, who i served under -- who's a republican, and he came this and, you know, he -- it was so important for him to change things, to shake things up and -- health care. he pushed an expansion of our medicaid program. with a cigarette tax increase. my god, that sounds pretty democratic. but it, you know, he wanted to leave a legacy with health care. and the one thing that made it republican was it had the health savings account approach. but any, all the other elements -- expanding medicaid to include working adults who didn't have kids and funding with the cigarette tax -- that comes out of the democratic playbook. so, and even our new governor, mike pence, who headed the republican study group when he was a hebb of congress which is -- member of congress which is the ultra conservative

they wanted to sort of that have an established church in the traditional sense was still have a tax are still of a system of support of the christian churches broadly speaking or tax to support a christian ministers even though the others will have for freedom to continue their breakfast. of course it was jefferson's you the concept of freedom as opposed to the concept of mere tolerance of the dynamics that comes out of the statute. and so it not only influenced the federal constitution. also enclosed the development of the church-state relationship other states. not all states are completely separated by church and state. in the early years a result of the federal government that was bound by the first amendment. no one thought that control the state's cents stateside massachusetts had a step was church well into the 1880's and a lot of that is the influence of the statute. it's more important that people sometimes -- if they know about all. a remarkable thing is that jefferson himself made this just a couple of weeks before died. he wrote out a little thing and how he wanted to be
